  • My review of the second episode..

    9.5
    Wow, this was a really cute and interesting episode to watch. Cute because I thought the chemistry between Amy and Ben was really cute, even though they felt really awkward, since all this is happening to them for the first time. I thought it was also interesting because we got to see what kind of friends Amy's friends were. I never thought they would be spreading rumors, but apparently they were, and I didn't like them that much because of that in this episode. The only part of the episode that annoyed me a little was the scene where Grace's dad tells her about Jack and advices to her about teenage boys. I didn't find anything wrong with the scene or story, but I just found the actor who plays the dad to be overly dramatic in this scene, and it came out as really pompous and arrogant, and not at all like how a father would advice his daughter. I found his acting to be really annoying and was hoping he would tone it down and not act as if it was a life or death situation. I also enjoyed Ricky and Adrien's relationship, and even though I don't like Adrien's character that much, I did feel sorry for her a bit in this episode. Overall, I thought this was a very nice continuation to the pilot episode.moreless
  • The first "I love you"

    7.5
    I think this episode sort of spaced out all the plots, last episode, it seemed like too much was going on for one episode. But now, it's spaced out. The problem I had with this episode is the Ben & Amy relationship, they have great chemistry but it seems rushed. The first "I love you" after one date. Really? It's nice to see Ricky still interested in Amy. Adrian being jealous is always fun to watch. We see Adrian & Ricky's relationship more in depth. Grace has some trouble forgiving Jack. Jack is scum in my opinion, and Grace doesn't deserve him, especially after he lied to her about the sex with Adrian. Well Amy has some friends, spreading the night that Ricky & Amy shared at band camp, and then denying it. Ouch! Other than the episode was pretty good.moreless

    9.0
    In this episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, the following happens. Amy is still in denial about her pregnancy. Word soon gets around school that Amy and Ricky have slept together. Word of this soon gets back to Ben, who is hurt by this. Amy soon finds out about the gossip herself, and the trial leads back to her 2 best friends starting the gossip. As the episode goes on, Ben seems to be falling for Amy more and more. Since Amy believes that her best friends, Laura and Madison, stared the gossip, she is not speaking to them. Amy also experiences her first morning sickness, whilst at school. When she confronts them, they both deny it. Amy offers to tell Ben about her and Ricky and he says that he doesn't want to know about it, or about any other boy she has been out with. At this point, Ben has heard the gossip about Amy sleeping with Ricky, but does not believe it.moreless

    Episode two! Amy and Ben are a couple, Ben is Amy's first boyfriend, Amy is Ben's first girlfriend, the first bit of the relationship is great. Amy loves spending time with Ben and Ben really loves spending time with Amy. In fact, he just really loves Amy, and that's what he tells her. And she says it back!

    Grace cannot decide whether to forgive Jack or move on and break up with him. And when she makes the decision she wants to date him, she wants her father, Marshall Bowman, to let them date again, since she needs his permission. Ben's two best friends, Alice and Henry overhear Madison and Lauren talking about Amy having sex with Ricky, and they tell Ben, but he doesn't believe them.

    • Ben: (leaving Amy a message after Alice and Henry told him she had sex with Ricky) Hi, Amy. It's me, Ben. Hi. Oh, I already said that. Um, anyway, uh, I was wondering...there's this rumor going around school that, uh, you and Ricky dated this summer or something. Not that it makes any difference. I was just wondering. Is that true? Okay, you know what? I have no way of calling back this message, which I wish I had never sent. It doesn't matter. I don't care. It's none of my business. None of my business at all. It's your business, but our business started the day that we met. Okay. Talk to you later, I hope. If I don't hear back from you, I'll call again, and if you don't answer, I'll see you tomorrow at school. Okay. Uh. And again, I don't even know why I asked. Okay. Bye. Oh, call me. Please? (hangs up)
      Henry: You were right. This was a really bad idea...

    • Marshall: (to Jack) Go home before I pummel you.
      Jack: I thought you were a Christian.
      Marshall: Oh that's right, I'm a Christian. So first I will smite you; then I will pummel you.

    • Jack: (on him cheating on Grace) I was weak. I was tempted. I gave in. But Grace, I swear, that's never gonna happen again. And if it did... I would... I don't know, I would smite myself! (notes Grace's confused look) Yeah, your dad said he was going to smite me.

    • Adrian: Hey! How are ya?
      Amy: Um, I'm fine.
      Adrian: You sure?
      Amy: Yeah, I'm sure.
      Adrian: I hope you know what you're doing.
      Amy: (worried) Am I doing something wrong? In band practice? Did I get in your way or something?
      Adrian: (laughing) No you didn't get in my way. Look if you're interested in Ricky, I won't go out with him, I'll back off. No, I'm really not into stealing anyone's boyfriend. I wasn't interested in taking Jack away from Grace, he came to me.
      Amy: (in disbelief, stuttering) I'm not interested in Ricky.

    • Alice: (on the death of Ben's mom) It's healthy. It's healthy to move on, Ben. It's been a long time. Five years is a long time.
      Ben: Yeah, it is. And believe me it feels longer than five years. Time passes real slow when you're a kid. It's starting to speed up a little though. I guess I'm getting older, maturing. Maybe I'll get married soon, have a kid, start a little family band.

    • Adrian: (referring to Amy) You can't be serious. You can't be interested in that... child.
      Ricky: (frustrated) You know some girls do it without broadcasting it to the whole school. Some girls are more discreet about their sex life than you. Some girls have class.

    • Amy: You know Grace's mom is my dad's ex-wife?
      Ricky: Oh, no kidding. You two don't look anything alike.

    • Lauren: (referring to Amy's pregnancy) Did you tell your parents about, you know.
      Amy: No.
      Madison: Why not?
      Amy: Well because I figured I have two options. One is to tell them and ruin the rest of my life and the other is to pretend it never happened. So, I'm going for never happened.

    • Ricky: He told the guys in the locker room, they told their girlfriends, and one of them already told me.
      Adrian: I don't really care.
      Ricky: What kind of guy brags about this kind of stuff?
      Adrian: Err... You told me about Amy Juergens.
      Ricky: Yeah. (self-deprecating laugh)
